But, leaving aside the question of whether that could win in the primaries, I find myself unclear on how centrist Republicans would differentiate themselves from centrist Democrats. Is it solely re: economic policies?
If you're a moderate Republican, one who's fine with gay marriage, who doesn't want the government making abortion illegal (even if you may be personally pro-life), who likes electing minorities and women and queers and disabled folks into office, etc. and so on -- if we agree on those liberal policies, I'd really like to know what remains that you consider important Republican issues / values. I'd like to learn.
